15 August 2009, Connecticut.
Hiking on another hot mosquito filled day. Nice lunch at the well known Housatonic Falls. Decided to push on as the terrain was somewhat flat. At the top of one mountain, rounded a bend in the trail near the top. Suddenly, heard a "rattle" noise - loud and just in front of me. It was this rattlesnake. We stared at each other for awhile, I took this picture, made some noise, and eventually - slowly - the snake moved off the trail. And, yes, they are poisonous.
